Merizo is the southernmost village in Guam. A picturesque beachside community, its shore is directly across from Cocos Island, a day resort island. A ferry from Merizo takes visitors back and forth to the island.
Traditionally a fishing village, Merizo offers great fishing from its pier though people should not eat the fish they catch in this area due to recent contamination found in Cocos Lagoon. Still, Merizo is a great place to enjoy the sea. In May, swimmers from around Asia come to take part in the Cocos Crossing, an annual swim race from Cocos Island to the Merizo Pier. Boating is also a popular recreational activity in Merizo. Another annual festival in Merizo, Fiestan Tasi (Festival of the Sea), celebrates Guam’s connection to the ocean. The Crab Festival also takes place in Merizo.
Merizo is primarily a residential community. Commercial building has been limited over the years to preserve the community’s agrarian past. Few businesses have been allowed in the area so residents must travel outside of Merizo for most services. Route 4 winds through Merizo and takes you up to Umatac, Agat, and Naval Base Guam.
